Click this Evidence of Explosives In The Twin Tower Collapses.
Observe calmly and concentrated all those 18 frame-photos from the North Tower collapse,
the various animated gifs on that page for the South and the North Towers collapses,
and then read this evidence why a pancake theory is outrageous wrong, since the visual evidence proves it immediately wrong :
The above animated graphic alternates the first and 67th frames. It shows a classic controlled demolition of a 12 story building (the top 12 stories of the North Tower). Strange how the roofline collapses so evenly, I guess, that all the central core columns and all the perimeter wall columns collapsed simultaneously. Some coincidence eh ?
The first line of explosives detonated across the 98th floor (where the collapse began). The second line of detonations occurred across the 92nd floor (just above the lower red line) with large flashes of hot gas from the explosions, clearly visible. Initially, the second line's detonation is obscured by the dust cloud of the first. However, being much more powerful detonations, the second line's dust cloud quickly bursts into view.
A close look at the video/photos shows that the collapse begins at the 98th floor, then the 99th floor collapses onto the 98th, then the 100th floor collapses onto the 98th, then the 101th floor collapses onto the 98th, then the 102th floor collapses onto the 98th, etc until the second line of detonations initiates the final collapse. So once again, we have the disintegration of the tower above the impact floors, before the collapse of the tower below the impact floors.
Interestingly, this observation disproves the so called pancake theory, where one floor collapses onto the next lower floor, causing that floor to also collapse (not that the pancake theory made any sense anyway). Here, what we see is 5 or 6 floors in a row, all falling onto the 98th floor, which does not collapse (until the second line of explosives are detonated, taking out its support). The pancake theory would have the 98th floor collapsing onto the 97th, causing that to collapse onto the 96th, causing that to collapse onto the 95th, etc.
These very strange circumstances, mentioned above, have a very simple explanation: The twin towers were deliberately demolished. Occam's razor, suggests that the simplest explanation, a deliberate demolition, is probably also the correct explanation.
Now it seems YOU seem to think all that mass dropping on the floor below would not be a problem

These explosives. They remained perfectly ok after the impact, the 1000degree fire? All the cords, detonators, initial and secondary charges? They were all ok? That's beyond incredible, and nobody noticed them. You've decided there were explosives. It's easier to believe that than to believe the chaos of incredible events that occurred that day.

Evidence of BOMBS INSIDE the WTC and Pentagon
Both the WTC Twin towers were exposed to heavy bombs being detonated inside and below - before the Towers fell down.
Several Bomb-explosions were taking place INSIDE the WTC and Bombs were detonated far below the Towers Crash level and these Demolition Bombs can be seen on certain and selected live TV pictures of the WTC Tower collapses.
But in general the News medias that controlled the flow of video-transmissions on Sept.11(and in the days that followed) - have tried to CENSOR most of the video clips of the WTC Tower collapse.(Manipulated video editing gives evidence of all this).
On my video I will present evidence of both "TV Picture Censorship" and "Sound Track Censorship".
The "Live TV Picture Censorship" was conducted in the following manner:
The Original Video clips of both Tower Collapses were NOT always shown in its entire length.

End of report.
The above text was written by Henrik Melvang, Denmark - on April 20, 2002.
NIST conducted an extremely thorough three-year investigation into what caused the WTC towers to collapse, as explained in NIST’s dedicated Web site, wtc.nist.gov...
This included consideration of a number of hypotheses for the collapses of the towers.
... analyzed 236 pieces of steel from the wreckage, performed laboratory tests and sophisticated computer simulations of the sequence of events that occurred from the moment the aircraft struck the towers until they began to collapse.
Based on this comprehensive investigation, NIST concluded that the WTC towers collapsed because :
(1) the impact of the planes severed and damaged support columns, dislodged fireproofing insulation coating the steel floor trusses and steel columns, and widely dispersed jet fuel over multiple floors; and
(2) the subsequent unusually large jet-fuel ignited multi-floor fires (which reached temperatures as high as 1,000 degrees Celsius) significantly weakened the floors and columns with dislodged fireproofing to the point where floors sagged and pulled inward on the perimeter columns.
This led to the inward bowing of the perimeter columns and failure of the south face of WTC 1 and the east face of WTC 2, initiating the collapse of each of the towers.
Both photographic and video evidence—as well as accounts from the New York Police Department aviation unit during a half-hour period prior to collapse—support this sequence for each tower.
NIST’s findings do not support the “pancake theory” of collapse, which is premised on a progressive failure of the floor systems in the WTC towers (the composite floor system—that connected the core columns and the perimeter columns—consisted of a grid of steel “trusses” integrated with a concrete slab ; see diagram below). Instead, the NIST investigation showed conclusively that the failure of the inwardly bowed perimeter columns initiated collapse and that the occurrence of this inward bowing required the sagging floors to remain connected to the columns and pull the columns inwards. Thus, the floors did not fail progressively to cause a pancaking phenomenon.

Once again all speculation. Post after post of speculation.
After a FULL 13 years all the conspiracy people have is speculation.

I had lunch yesterday in Houston with former-Federal Judge Sam Kent (the first Federal Judge found guilty of serious crimes in the US) and he told me why he thinks he was prosecuted. For those who haven't followed this, he was found guilty on perjury & sexual misconduct. Yes, he slept with those two women, but it was consensual. Actually, they were old affairs and long over. What Sam said was that "isn't is strange that the Justice Department begins sniffing around for dirt to throw at me just weeks after I ruled a heavy case against Halliburton. Then a small set of affairs turn into an untrue situation and then spun up into an unprecedented case against a Federal Judge." Of course, I told him he was nuts to rule anything against Halliburton. I also told him that this sounds like a John Grisham plotline.
The roof line of the North Tower of the World Trade Center is shown to have been in constant downward acceleration until it disappeared. A downward acceleration of the falling upper block implies a downward net force, which requires that the upward resistive force was less than the weight of the block.
Newton’s second law of motion says that a net force acting on a body will cause it to accelerate. The net force and the resulting acceleration will be in the same direction. In this case, since the measured acceleration is downward, the net force is also downward. Since the net force in this case is made up of gravity (acting downward) and structural resistance (acting upward), the upward resistance must be weaker than the gravitational force.
However the gravitational force on the upper block is simply its weight, so we conclude that the resistive force is less than the weight of the upper block.
Therefore the downward force exerted by the falling block must also have been less than its weight.
Newton’s third law of motion says that forces come in pairs. Two bodies will always exert equal but opposite forces on each other. Therefore the downward force of the upper block on the lower section of the building is equal to the upward resistive force, which we have shown is less than the weight of the upper block.
Since the lower section of the building was designed to support several times the weight of the upper block, the reduced force exerted by the falling block was insufficient to crush the lower section of the building. Therefore the falling block could not have acted as a "pile driver." The downward acceleration of the upper block can be understood as a consequence of, not the cause of, the disintegration of the lower section of the building.
..from the fact that the upper block continues to move downward without deceleration, it is clear that there was no jolt, despite the significant deformation of the building in the first three seconds. (LT : no SLOWING jolt, at all)
Videos show that the section of the building above the plane impact point was the first section to disintegrate. It was significantly reduced in size prior to the onset of destruction of the lower section of the building.
See the animated GIF of the destruction of the top part of Tower-1N, with the two red horizontal lines, I posted a few posts up there.
The whole section under the lowest red line, does not change at all.!
While the whole upper top half is exploding.

You and many others in the "Truth" Movement keep falling for that most basic error in reading comprehension about pancaking floors. NIST has discovered that progressive pancaking was not the initiator of the collapse, but rather the end result of the actual initiator, which was the inward bowing and the resulting failure of the external columns, something that your magical thermobaric bombs are unable to explain, since they would have been heard loud and clear, and I'm sorry but muffling them with water would have seriously degraded their use. I don't think you still fully comprehend how a thermobaric device works. And to claim that one can muffle it with water just proves to me that you have no idea. Thermobaric devices need to scatter their fuel first before ignition. Be it a fuel air bomb or some other flammable fuel, they need to mix with the surrounding air to detonate properly. Placing water around them, makes them fizzle.
